gif2png

gif2png is a simple command-line utility to convert images from GIF to PNG format. It automatically preserves transparency, interlacing and text comments, and it can do multiple images in one command (e.g., gif2png *.gif). The distribution also includes a web2png script that can be used to convert an entire web tree; it calls gif2png to do image conversions, then patches IMG SRC tags correctly in referring pages.

I haven't tried gif2png, but if you want to do such conversions, I'd recommend looking into netpbm. Then you do, e.g., giftopnm <foo.gif | pnmtopng >foo.png.

A most useful utility!
In the past, I have used GIMP or XnView to do .gif to .png conversion. Now I need not launch a large X app to do so. Thank you!

Win32 port of version 2.3.2
As a tangible thing to do in exchange of have and use this really useful tool
for free, I made some trickery with makefiles under NT and made a static executable
of version 2.3.2 (no zlib/libpng dll required). You can get it from: exe2bin.com/gif2png-wi... (exe2bin.com/gif2png-wi...).
Windoze users then has no excuses not to burn all their gifs! :-)
